Another sign related to arthritis is excessive fatigue. We all get tired from time to time, but excessive fatigue implies deep-rooted fatigue that’s present even after sleeping 8 hours or following an afternoon nap. You feel fatigued at times when you normally would expect not to feel fatigued.
Like malaise, excessive fatigue can result from the combined effects of inflammation and joint symptoms. Don’t ignore fatigue or shake it off as just being a little tired. It’s another arthritis sign that must not be ignored.
